You have a file like this?: filename.1.gz

to unzip, type: gunzip filename.1.gz

then you'll have filename.1 (whatever that means...... )

I did that but it says that permission is denied. How come? I am actually unzipping a n xscreensaver file. Does this have anything to do with it?

Ok--maybe you need to change the permissions.
ls -l to see what they are
chmod to change them

example:
chmod 755 filename gives full powers to root, and read and execute powers to everyone else. (chmod has to be run by the OWNER of the file--or by root)

or maybe you're in a directory you can't write to, so you can't create the uncompressed file

permissions are a wonderful thing....

I usually just get lazy and do all such tasks as root...
